Matt Loves Being a Daddy

Matt took some time to sign autographs on his way to a press junket in NY the other day. His latest film, The Good Shepherd, is due out December 22nd and has an all star cast including Robert De Niro and Angelina Jolie. In the film, Matt plays an intelligence agent who puts his work above all else, even his wife and son. In real life, however, Matt is quite the opposite. He says he loves being a daddy to his six month old Isabella. Here's more:

Admitting that the overall feeling is, "Great, great. That's been just amazing," Damon....says that fatherhood "defies description, actually. I don't really know how to talk about it, because I don't really know – I feel like I got made a member of a club that I didn't know existed."

"I didn't think that this would happen to me," Damon continued. "Other people were always showing me baby pictures or trying to hand me the baby, and I was like, 'Get that thing away from me. I don't want to touch your kid. Give me a break.' But I'm totally into it now."

At first, the "scared" actor was "kind of excited for my daughter to be 2. I was excited for her to start kind of talking and walking and toddling around hanging out, but I didn't realize how much personality little people have right off the bat. So it's just been fun."

His favorite activity with his daughter, he said, is getting her to laugh. "You do this thing where you can either give her (a raspberry) on the stomach or if you sort of act like you're going to munch her underarm, and she laughs like a little machine gun. And it's like I could do it forever."

OMG - could he be any cuter?

I know Pop LOVES Matt, but until this moment I wasn't his biggest fan. These quotes about being a Daddy are pure sweet devotion and he has earned a new fan.

Val- 6 months is the best! That is when babies really start to interact more. They know their name, they give hugs and kisses, they can eat fun things like cheerios with those 2 cute teeth on the bottom. I've always said 6 months is my favorite age.

He's totally right, too. You can never describe it until it happens to you. I think he looks like a dad right here, kind of tired. But still cute. :)

I always thought he was the type that didn't like kids. Things just change when it's your own child then you can finally understand. The way he describes his new found fatherhood is cute.

He needs to quit promoting movies and finish "The Bourne Ultimatum" already. It's killing me that it's not in theatres yet. Boo.
